Whitepaper: “The Gaming & gambling VR era: New Solutions and Beyond”

February 5, 2017

Introduction

Everyday, VR technology becomes more of a household name. Despite the fact that its products now have no more than 1% of the total  game development outsourcing market, we see new, higher usability devices hitting the market. If you want an example, look at Razer and FOVE. Moreover, there is nothing to prevent ‘established’ names like Oculus Rift and HTC Vive 2 from offering new generation augmented reality & virtual reality technology soon. This, in turn, inevitably cuts costs, provides higher usability, and excites minds with outstanding immersive experiences. That means, more prospects are open to VR gaming and gambling, and someone needs to fill this industry gap asap.

Gaming & Gambling Industry and VR Era

Game outsourcing prospects are more or less clear: virtual reality products already exist and evolve despite current hefty costs and device imperfections. As for the gambling industry, according to Doug Dyer, Innovecs VP of Gaming, “This tech [VR] will become handy and comfortable to be used for virtual casino travel or to play slots.” Recent trends show the goal of virtual reality & augmented reality is to run applications on high usability devices with prices comparable to the smartphone’s cost. In this case, these companies are predicted to dominate an industry that is already working on their virtual reality products and developments.
